Lawn Care

Core Aeration

One of the easiest and most environmentally-friendly ways to keep your lawn lush and weed-free is core aeration.

Using a machine to dig small cylindrical holes in the lawn (about the size of your index finger), lawn aeration breaks up the soil with tiny holes to facilitate better circulation of air, water, and nutrients to the roots.

The plugs of turf are left on the top of the lawn to decompose back into the earth and reinvigorate your green space. 

Why Core Aeration is Vital to the Health of Your Lawn

  • Improve the vitality of your lawn
  • Reduce pests, weeds, and disease
  • Improve water and fertilizer movement through soil
  • Encourage deep lawn roots

Core aeration is an important step in lawn care is often overlooked. However, it’s crucial—especially if your turf is older. As sod ages, the earth underneath often becomes compacted to the point of near suffocation. The roots of your grass cannot absorb air, water, and other vital nutrients. As a result, the health of your lawn is compromised and the area is more likely to become a breeding ground for pests, weeds, and diseases.

When Should You Book Your Core Aeration? 

The ideal time to aerate your lawn is in the spring and autumn when your lawn is growing optimally and can fill in the holes.
